MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A Montgomery police officer, who was accused of sexual assault while on duty, is facing a federal lawsuit, according to court documents. 

The officer, identified as Deonte Lashawn Hamner, was arrested in June on a felony first-degree sodomy charge. Court records show Hamner forced the male victim to perform oral sex on him while holding him a gunpoint. 

The victim in the case, who has not been identified, filed a civil lawsuit in state court against Hamner. That suit, which says the victim now suffers from PTSD, extreme humiliation, anxiety, depression and mental anguish, has been moved to federal court. 

Documents say the victim is seeking a jury trial and money compensation. The case has been bound to a grand jury.

Those documents also show that Hamner has denied every allegation against him. Hamner graduated from the police academy in 2014.
